Tony Jackson studied painting at Bath Academy of Art, (1963-66). He then worked as an Art Teacher in secondary schools for 30 years, and was the Director of Expressive Arts at a school in Hemel Hempstead where he lives
He took early retirement in 1996 to concentrate on his painting, the development of Adult Education classes in Art and Design, and painting demonstrations and workshops for art societies across the south of England.
His demonstrations and workshops are mostly about the use of acrylics and pastels. His technique can be summed up as “producing a tonal painting in blue and white which is turned into a full colour image with washes of primary colours”. This applies to classes/demonstrations on portraits, landscape, still life and studies of life in India.
Most of Tony's recent work has been naturalistic, featuring scenes of life in India, though recently he has taken on a number of portrait commissions.
He has exhibited in Hertfordshire, London and Calcutta.
